ADORNMENT DUE TO THE
HOUSE OP GOD.
Our Lord came upon earth in
all humility and purity. He
could have been born in a palace
instead of a stable, but He pre,-
ferred the stable among the
beasts, the manger for his couch,
straw for his pillow, all for our
example, to teach us true humi-
lity; but, whilst He deigned to
place Himself in such extreme
poverty, He did not command us
to let Him remain in that humble
state. Many men of dstinction,
even some of our Presidents,
were born in quite plain and
humble circumstances, hut they
did not close their lives in that
way. They were honored in all
places and at all times. They
were placed in the White House
in Washington, in style and with
all comforts, as a ruler of the
United States. We should then
honor our Lord the Ruler and
Creator of the entire world, by
making our churches a becoming
abode for Him to dwell in, by
adorning it with all possible
grandeur. He has made all
things for our pleasure, comfort
and admiration. Then most
cheerfully should we share with
Him. O, cOuld the Ciborium in
the tabernacle in which His sa-
cred body rests form the rising
to the setting of the sun, be one
made of precious jewels. Noth-
ing is too grand or costly for our
Lord. He deserves all this and
hearts that truly love Him long
to lavish upon Him in this man-
ner. Many persons seem to take
no pleasure in making such
strong demonstration of love and
honor due their God; they think
a plain dingy looking church
will answer all purposes to pray
in; they all say one does not ask
for grandeur. It is true He does
not, He leaves all that to our love
and generosity. As He has made
all things, so He has in His pow-
er to make His d welling place
here on all grandeur, all magni-
ficence. But He leaves that for
us His children to do to prove
our love and gratitude for all His
goodness to us. One glance from
His eyes takes in all He has cre-
ated, all the beauties of nature.
A simple little fragrant flower
culled and placed at His sacred
feet as a mark of our love and
appreciation, are very pleasing
to Him. Their beauty and fra-
grance are, as it were, prayers
of love ascending up to Him. In
heaven now, He sits upon His
throne bestowing upon us many
blessings and waiting for our
acts of love and gratitude in re-
IN DIVERS TONGUES.
An immigration official during
the course of a lecture one even-
ing was exhibiting types of ar-
rivals at the Ellis Island immi-
gration station in New York.
He told of a fellow on a ship one
day whose face and make-up
were such that the inspection of-
ficers could not for the life of
them determine the particular
country whence he came. He
was accotsed in turn by linguists
in Italian, German, Slovak, Scan-
dinavian, Greek and Finnish.
Not less than twenty-two differ-
ent tongues and dialects were
tried on the new arrival, who
looked as though he might have
hailed from any one of the coun-
tries where those languages are
spoken; but he didn't saya word,
just stood and stared at the offi-
cers who were interrogating him.
Finally he turned to them and
exclaimed: "For the love of
heaven, is there anybody around
here who can speak English? '
We once heard Judge A. M.
Keiley narrate a somewhat simi-
lar experience he had while on
the bench in the International
Court at Cairo. After a witness
whose nationality was a puzzle
had been addressed in French,
Spanish, German, Portuguese,
Italian and Arabic, and failed to
make any response except to in-
dicate by shaking his head that
he did not understand. Judge
Keiley turned to a brother Judge,
and remarked sotto voice: ''I
wonder what language the idiot
"The same as yourself, yer
honor," came from the witness
in the broadest Tipperary brogue.
THE DOCTOR'S MISTAKE.
A doctor who thinks that all
the ills of the human race can be
traced to the drinking of coffee
and tea entered a restaurant re-
cently and seated himself oppo-
site an Irishman who was busy-
ing himself trying to dispose of a
steaming cup of coffee.
' 'How often do you use coffee?"
queried the doctor.
"I drink it morning, noon and
"Don't you experience a slight
dizziness of the brain on retiring
"Indeed I do, sir, very fre-
"You have a sharp pain
through the temples and in and
around the eyes?"
"Right you are," replied the
"You are possessed with a
drowsiness when you awake in
the morning, and your head of-
ten aches and feels very heavy."
"Right again," answered the
Irishman, still sipping his coffee.
"Well then," exclaimed the
doctor, sitting erect in the chair,
"aren't you convinced, that the
coffee is the cause?"
"Is that so?" said the Irish-
man in astonishment. Faith, I
always thought it was the whis-
PAYING FOR SILENCE.
"Talk about having to pay
every time you turn around,"
said Congressman Seed graft as
he twisted his unlighted cigar be-
tween his teeth and elevated his
feet upon a brass cuspidor in one
of the lobbies at the capitol. "I
struck the worst case of it in my
last campaign that I ever found.
I was making a long journey
across the country where there
were practically no members of
my party living. I had to put
up at a small hotel run by a man
who was red-hot for my oppo-
His accommodations were fair-
ly good except that my room was
near a stable and the cow dis-
turbed me for a while; but when
I complained the landlord soon
silenced her. The next morning
when he presented my bill, I
found an extra 50 cents charged
for hay beside what my horse
"Here,' I said. 'What does
this 50 cents worth of hay mean?
I did not order it."
"No!' the old fellow replied,
'but you said the noise from the
stable kept you awake and I had
to give hay to the cow to keep
